Collaborations and Partnerships

The sentiment that “Together we can accomplish more than what we can do alone,” resonates well with the spirit of PTI. An important goal for PTI is to engage people at multiple levels -- faculty, students, and postdocs -- to work collaboratively through community building to tackle interesting problems to advance our fundamental scientific understanding. At the same time, through our collaborations and partnerships under PTI, we also wish to address pressing problems that may lead to a better and more efficient way of doing things through innovations and translational research that have underpinnings in Nanomaterials and Microsystems Technology.

Industrial Engagement and Community Building

Industry engagement and community buildingThe PTI will nurture and strengthen relationships with local-area industry and national labs for joint opportunities to create, foster, and sustain mutually beneficial research collaborations and partnerships. These partnerships should benefit PTI-affiliated students, and strengthen research opportunities for the PTI-affiliated faculty which are of mutual interest to our industrial partners.  We will strive toward innovations by working with local businesses and entrepreneurs for economic development with the appropriate support and engagement from the UNT Tech Transfer Office.

We welcome the opportunity to engage with industry across the US and internationally. If you are interested in working with us, please contact us at or reach out to us through the various contacts provided below.
